Let's take a moment to give it up for our lady loves - those precious women in our lives who make getting through the tough stuff possible. Life isn't always easy. Having a sister in your corner - whether you are related to her by blood or simply bound to her by love, is pretty amazing.
I know the whole Galentine's Day concept is only supposed to be a sort of cute and funny spin on Valentine's Day, but it really strikes a chord with me!
Society celebrates romantic love all year long. It's propped up on a pedestal and often focused on as the one true key to happiness. But the other relationships in our lives matter so much too. As women, our best friends, mothers, sisters, aunts, and cousins often represent the bulk of our support system. These are the relationships that we lean on in times of need and doubt. These people are our cheerleaders, our babysitters, our colleagues, confidants and our defenders.
We need our gals.
If you have some special ladies in your life you'd like to celebrate, why not print up a batch of Galentines? I designed these little printable cards to help you spread the lady-love this year, and I used some of my favorite lines from songs and books to decorate them! Do you recognize them all?
